Finally, the truth! Political hypocrisy, sexual hanky panky, and downright deviance brought to you by the family values crowd!


Test your family values IQ!  Can you name the moral exemplar who . . . died of autoerotic asphyxiation dressed in two rubber wet suits, flippers, and gloves? . . . was married three times, refused to pay child support, and licked whipped cream off two women's breasts at a charity event? . . . once bragged about participating in gangbanging a woman in a weight-lifting gym?

Shocking, illuminating, profoundly disturbing, You Don't Know Me: A Citizen's Guide to Republican Family Values details over 100 cases of sexual misconduct by Republican officials, office holders, and ideological supporters. In addition to augmenting the public's knowledge of recent infamous scandals (such as those involving Newt Gingrich, Bill O'Reilly, and Larry Craig), You Don't Know Me unearths a multitude of other instances of Republican sexual waywardness and criminality. The book has an intellectual and historical context as well. Author Win McCormack's introduction explores parallels between Republican abuses of power in the sexual and political realms and traces their common intellectual and psychological origins. You Don't Know Me exposes the true extent of Republican hypocrisy, dealing a deathblow to the moral pretensions of the GOP leadership of recent times.

"Republican abuses of political power and Republican sexual abuses in recent times are not unrelated phenomena. They have the same psychological origins and the same intellectual inspiration. They are two ugly faces of the predominant strain in contemporary American conservatism today."
